Swedish Massage

December 3, 2012
A Swedish massage is the most common type of massage treatment in America today. Begun in the 1700s, its intent was to increase blood flow and to relax muscles for patients with arthritis and other painful diseases. The strong movements of the Swedish massage glide from the toes toward the heart and also from the head toward the heart. Because muscles tense when the body senses danger and stress, Swedish massage loosens muscles, lowering blood pressure and heart rate.
